We found the Blue Marlin on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We had the coconut prawns and 7 seas soup. Both were great as were the margaritas. If we get back to Puerto Penasco we will come here...More

What a great place to enjoy a pleasant meal..The bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese in a pineapple sauce is delicious and the flounder was excellent along with the margarita..Great service by Jose Luis made the meal more enjoyable.

Thirteen of us were in town looking for a great place to eat. And man did we find it. Just a half block off the beach Blue Marlin is the place to go. We were warmly welcomed by Jose and the rest of the staff....More

Came here expecting amazing seafood, left with disappointment. The food is mediocre and would be considered expensive for what you get. We had the flounder supremo and chipotle shrimp. Unfortunately even the taco stands had better food for the price point.

The food is amazing and the service was incredible. We were a party of sixteen that showed up without reservations. It’s a small and quaint restaurant and they accommodated our group so quickly. Not only did all of our food arrive to the table close...More

Our group had flounder, chipotle shrimp and a seafood salad, all of which was prepared nicely. We sat outside so were in the company of 3 cats who befriended us. Not an issue for us since we have 1 at home!

We had wonderful shrimp cocktail at the Blue Marlin. I would say the best cocktail in Puerto Penasco. We'll stop in the next time we're down there.

We did not make a reservation, we were just walking by and saw the sign and read the menu. An English-speaking waiter came to greet us so we entered. The margaritas were excellent.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
